The Summer of Color Contest produced some awesome socks using Simply Sock Yarn. The three winners even received credits to the store totalling $500. It also produced a new patterns, as many of the entrants developed their own pattern for their socks. Three of these knitters shared their patterns with me and gave permission to post them here.
Keep in mind when knitting these that while they have been tested by their authors, I'm not going to come to your house and help you, should there be any mistakes in the patterns. Ha! But if you or the authors do find errors and send me new files, I'll may update them to correct errors.
If you are on Ravelry, you can queue up any of these patterns here.
